    We can talk all day about Bogaerts moving to third and WMB to first, and those positional changes are a real possibility in the future but does anyone here really think the Red Sox are going to do that next year?

     



    It's a possibility.  If Drew accepts and Nap declines.  If Drew is not the SS, then we need to trade Drew and sign a 1B.  I think it be easier at that point to play WMB at 1st, Drew at SS, and XBo at 3rd, then hope Marrero is ready for 2015.

     

    [/QUOTE]

    I think they'd be more likely to trad Drew before they move two young guys off position.   The sox will either sign Napoli or sign Abreau, their back up plan I think is Nava or Carp in which case they will probably go out and buy a Platoon mate, such as a Corey Hart type.  IMHO of course.

    How can Boston trade Drew if he is going to be a free agent after this season??

    The Red Sox can't trade Drew since he is a free agent this fall.  I would expect him wanting a multi year deal, which I don't think the Red Sox would give him.  I wouldn't mind it, even if it means moving two players off of their normal positions.  It wouldn't be much of an adjustment for Bogaerts, who is getting playing time tre now, and Middlebrooks is athletic enough where it would be an easy transition.

    But, I hope the Red Sox can come to an agreement with Napoli, he has been a great fit and have a multi year deal, similar to this year.  I do think the Red Sox will really miss Ellsbury and is under appreciated.  A .290 plus hitter with being the major league leader in stolen bases won't be easy to replace.

    People, the Sox could trade Drew if he accepts a Q.O.

    Not saying it will happen because I think Drew would decline a Q.O. I'm saying it is aplausible scenario.  I know my stuff, I'm fully aware that a free agent can't be traded, that's just silly stupid.

    I will reiterate my earlier point, WMB moving to 1st and Bogaerts to 3rd is fantasy talk. It's not happening.  It might sound great in theory but it's not the route the sox are willing to go nor Drew.

    Id be willing to bet hard money on that stance.

    Hahahaha.  You are decidedly on my list of people not to bet against.  It was like that in the old poker games.  One of my friends just came in from Costa Rico.  Even if I thought I was right, the chances of him being right were pretty good as well.  So unless I had him dominated, I would generally steer clear.

    Same here with you.  I rarely see you make a mistake, and the few times you were wrong, it was mostly just on the margins.

    Another reason that Boston should resign Napoli, he can be a perfect DH hitter in the future. Papi may not be around too long.

    to think that management didnt discuss it with coaches and the players involved is being....naive.

    Ben will work within his budget and have contingencies

    Ellsbury is the first priority - 6/100 take it or leave it and then move to Plan B (JBJ)

    Then Lester - most likely execute the option and keep him for one more year (you could always deal him during the season if necessary)

    Then Salty - 2 year 26 million w/ performance triggered 3rd year @ $13 million

    After that, fixing the pen

    Then Napoli - 2 year 26 million (that would give him his original 3/39 deal back in tact that he lost)

     I don't think they bother w/ Drew.  Bogie seems to be ready to take the job at a fraction of the cost.  We'll have to save $ somewhere.

    Remember, unlike the yankees having to cut their budget by $50 million, we could actually increase our budget by $25 million


    AWESOME!!!!!!!

     

    i think in the end Ellsbury and the Sox come together and keep him there...

    I hope you're right about this. IMO keeping Ellsbury solves some major problems for next year.  Of course it'll all depend on how much the FA's want and how much the FO is willing to spend but I see Ellsbury as the lynchpin in next year's team.

    I already acknowledged the fact that talkin heads, sox & mets fans went on forever about it

    to think that management didnt discuss it with coaches and the players involved is being....naive.

    to say that jeter threw a tantrum when asked and there would be no link for it

    is not only naive it's disingenuous total BS

    it not only destroys what little cred U had

    it hurts the credibility of the board

     

    why not spare the others of our BS

    and admit you made it up

    they will be knocking $30MM off payroll with Selig's gift to the yankees.....

     




    well it's our buddy 'no cred slash'

    so what's your point this time

    arod should not be suspended w/o pay ?

     

     

    Hfxsoxnut while you make a good case as to why

    I think napoli is way to much of a luxury now

    that's luxury as in luxury tax

    I see the the yanks being much more interested in drew and/ or salty

     




    Oh,  he should be suspended no doubt.  And without pay.  But..... 

    Yanks should assume that hit(30m) on their overall salary cap.  You traded for him,  you ripped-up his old and gave him a new contract,  you reaped the benefits of his being on the junk(hello 2009)....  you should feel some repercussions from his obvious cheating while benefitting your team.   Hell,  you're benefitting right now from his playing and affecting a playoff race while still dirty,  and you will benefit next year when you can slot that 30m to other FA's.  All other players are serving/served their time...  but not Slappy.  He's special.  Such arrogance.

    Must have been a heart tease for him seeing Mo get such adoration from Boston fan while he reaps such wrath and hatred where ever he goes.  I guess he'll cry all the way to the bank.
